I noticed the same thing yesterday when postgresql stopped working
properly because there wasn't an entry for my public IP in the
pg_hba.conf file.

If you telnet to the system still believes you are
coming from your public IP. Bizarre that. Other IPs don't act
that way. My system has two public IPs and If I
telnet to myself on either of the public IPs then I appear
from the correct IP. However no longer seems to 
work that way and that does break a number of things that
expect to be connected to by
